I work with soft-tissues issues that can cause chronic pain; with my specialized education and understanding of anatomy, I will help you to understand many of the reasons behind your pain and discomfort. Therefore, my sessions include approximately 15+ minutes of consultation/evaluation, health education, medically-oriented session notes, over and above the hands-on time. My assessment skills, education, and the specificity of my work is what sets me apart from most other massage practitioners.

You may be asked to provide proof of a negative COVID text before rescheduling, depending upon your symptoms.
Bottom line is if the St. Paul Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather, so am I. If the weatherman reports that "driving or temperatures could be dangerous", stay home and avoid being in an accident/outside. Just call me as soon as you think you can't make it, and I will reschedule you and waive the cancellation fee.
